Minority appeal

The Equalities Review report comes out shortly and, as is traditional, the salient points are aired in the media first.
All very worthy, I'm sure. The bit that sticks out for me is the assertion from Trevor Phillips that all Britons could expect to be "part of a minority" at some stage. Rubbish. I know it's a tactic of the Mail and Express to paint it as such, but white, middle/upper class males will never be in a minority and never subject to the vagaries and inequalities society seems fit to inflict on
vast swathes of the rest of the populous.
